First on TVNewser: We may not see Kiran Chetry on Fox News Channel anymore.

The news update and weekend anchor was in the middle of contract negotiations with the net, but they are no longer interested in matching any other offer she receives, according to a letter sent to her agent this afternoon.

In the letter, legal VP Dianne Brandi says “Chetry is free to leave Fox News prior to March 6 (the natural expiration of the agreement) with no further compensation.”

Why? Because, according to the letter, Chetry’s agent has “treated Fox News with such arrogant disregard that we do not desire to do any further business with you.”

It concludes: “We had hoped that Ms. Chetry would have a bright future with the Fox News Channel, however this negotiation has now become more trouble than it is worth.” Here’s the PDF of the letter.
